I am a HUMAN BEING.
Do not sideline me with your gender categories.
I am not a GIRL BOSS or a BOSS LADY.
I am THE BOSS.
I am not a FEARLESS FEMALE.
I am FEARLESS.
It amazes me how little ground we have covered over the hundreds of thousands of years we have roamed this planet. Sure, you could argue that while our modern ancestors have been around for about 200, 000 years, civilization as we have come to know it has only been around for about 6,000 years.
I had higher hopes for us as a species.
Now I am not sure where hope resides.
My vagina cannot be ignored and so slots me in to the category of WOMAN/FEMALE, but I would rather be a PERSON.
A HUMAN BEING.
We are a species, a type of creature on this planet. Yet we are the only collection of creatures that feels the need to split our species in to gender groups, male and female. And from that divide is born every issue that has ever plagued humanity. And, because we opted to do that, we instantly created a boundary between us.
And in doing so we have limited our abilities in so many ways.
So. Many. Ways.
Because we have separated the sexes the way we have, installed now is an acrimonious opposition that has created a rift so vast it leaves one to wonder if that is a gap that can ever be closed. But then, if I’m left to think about it, I wonder if we are not currently trying to widen it. Regardless of the rally.
Smoke and mirrors. It’s all smoke and mirrors. Because, unfortunately, that is the state of our evolution. We are not a trustworthy group, divided or whole. And that means none of it is real. There is no genuine want to fix.
We are so far removed from the truth of our existence that our reality is skewed. And ultimately, that leaves us believing that the purpose of unity is benefit.
And it’s not.
A HUMAN CONNECTION.
How did we forget that?
